O'Leary family, Ballymacaquim, Killahan Civil parish

I'm looking to determine whether there are surviving members of the O'Leary family who once lived in the townland of Ballymacaquim West, in Killahan Parish North Kerry?

My cousin Bridget Hanafin O'Leary married William O'Leary in 1938 at the Church in Abbeydorney. Both were residing in Ballymacaquim at the time of the marriage.

Bridget and William had four children as far as I'm aware, John, Patrick, Michael and Sarah, all born in a range from 1940-1953.

It's possible that Bridget died in 1953 or thereabouts at which time the property reverted to her husband William who was still there as late as 1969. The property then reverted to Denis Sheehan and then to John Shanahan. Don't know whether either Denis nor John were related to the O'Leary family.

I'd like to know if any of the children of Bridget and William are still living and if so, where are they living ? I'D also like to know whether Denis Sheehan and/ or John Shanahan are related since they may be my cousins as well.
